Hello Charles, Valerie and listmembers, ..
I think different. In fact I have been in the need to write the back of the
hand at a diagonal position and felt happy to understand that here is the
solution to this problem. In the past I used only three of the five
positions - but now I can imagine to use # 4 as well -

In fact I would love to see spellings of the positions if the hands are
parallel to the floor but at an angle - like in boat or ship - up to now I
feel uncomfortable fith the flat hands without any angle ?? Know what I mean

I guess I saw a spelling in the Odysseus from Nicaragua - but Im not sure -
there they added two diagonal lines to indicate that the flat hands parallel
to the ground back of the hands outside are at an angel --

Would love to learn more about this !!

Stefan ;-)
